MooWee Plays Internet TV with Your Wii

MooWee is an application that lets you watch Internet TV content on your television screen using your Nintento Wii game console. You’ll need an Internet broadband connection with a minimum bandwidth of 384kbps as well as an Internet browser on your Wii console in order to hook this up to your television….

The MooWee service can be enjoyed online as well. MooWee is of course an alternative to other set top devices like Apple TV, and other game consoles like the Xbox, which has recently indicated that it would like to work with th BBC on providing content for users. Sony is another company that’s looking to be more competitive in this market, and will be using a collection of devices and services to do so. Other services include Building B and Jaman. StumbleVideo offers a similar service for Nintendo Wii.” [Mashable]

Anyone tried any of these services on the Wii yet? If I have time this weekend….

  4. Is this anything like Slingbox which turns your computer into your cable remote control and your monitor into the tv. Basically you can record something to your DVR and then access it (or have someone with your username and password access it) anywhere in the world. Its great for those of us without a TV in the bedrooms but who have great laptops.

    Can we say potential copyright problems anyone?

    Does anyone have experience with Slingbox?

  5. Hi, Steve – no, it’s really not. I’m intrigued by Slingbox – I know someone who has one and loves it. The new model came out this month, and I’m seriously considering it.
